Iron With Dinner


4 comments posted

Menopause is your only hope. After that our iron miraculously builds up to such a degree that we are in danger of having too much iron, which can lead to organ failure and heart attacks. So many little joys around every corner.

You know that really high percentage cocoa is a source of iron, doncha?

Well, Pearl, bless your heart. I'd forgotten that joyous fact.

God, I dread menopause. I've been having hot flashes since I was 16 or 17, so I can only imagine what menopause is going to be like.

Hi Megan, I just happened on

Hi Megan,

I just happened on this blog of yours today while I was looking for something totally unrelated. I just thought (but I also can't help myself) I would also mention Nettle tea. It's super high in iron and good for you at so many other levels too and the taste is pretty good. Although it might just be an added effort to have to make tea rather than pop a pill, I thought you might like to know about it.

You can get some at any natural food store in Ottawa. I am pretty sure H&S have it although I am not usually super impressed on the quality of their herbs. the natural food pantry in the market usually has nice stuff. In the spring, we could go out and scavenge some.

Hope you are doing well,

see you soon,
